How to succeed in business in rural Alaska
by Kathleen McCoy |
The Alaska Tribal Cache has done it right. The Seldovia maker of wild-berry products that are sold throughout Alaska and around the country could be the poster child for a successful rural-Alaska business. The company, founded by the local tribal council in 1995, sells a boutique product combining elements of traditional culture with a quality food item. It smartly uses the Internet to broaden its market.
On Thursday, March 6 from 12-1 p.m., ISER presents their findings on the study "Successful Businesses in Rural Alaska: What Works?" The research was sponsored by the Rasmuson Foundation, BP Exploration, Wells Fargo Bank, the U.S. Economic Development Administration, and the University of Alaska Foundation. Come to ISER and hear Sharman Haley and Jane Angvik talk about the research results. Visit www.iser.uaa.alaska.edu/Home/brownbag.htm for more information or call (907) 786-7710.
